We do this by enabling VFA Fellows and other young, entrepreneurial minded professionals with the capital and resources they need to make an impact on their communities' youth. Here's how it works:



A Fellow or young professional works with her community to develop an idea that can impact their communities' youth around entrepreneurship.


Startup Effect works with these Fellows and professionals to scope out their ideas.


Startup Effect provides capital and resources to propel the event / project forward.

Fellows and community engage with youth to try and create value.
